Special Statement
Issued: 11:23 AM CDT Jun. 19, 2018 – National Weather Service

With deep Gulf moisture in place, conditions are somewhat favorable
for tropical funnel clouds.

Funnel clouds in this environment are usually short lived and
rarely reach the ground. However, if one is observed be prepared
to seek shelter if it appears to descend to the ground as they
can produce strong winds that can produce minor damage.

Similarly, waterspouts are also possible and can be hazardous to
mariners. If a waterspout is observed, move at a 90 degree angle
from its apparent motion and seek shelter until it has passed or
dissipates.
